What a great deal, good for you. go mod. Sand and paint the chair a lacquer color of your choice. I've seen some great shiney turquoise or lipstick red, but I prefer white or black lacquer. How fun. How to do the upholstery on the bottom part though. I would be clueless. Good luck!


Apartment Therapy San Francisco | Good Questions: Ideas for a Chair Makeover?

Jean: The top of the barrister contains a small collection of Joan Walsh Anglund items. I'm a huge fan of hers.
Sunrise: I'm faithful to BEHR paint colors, they are top notch. Good luck!
Standupstapler: Thank you, I've always known I wanted those chairs - and its always been cool to have them (in my opinion, there never was a "before it was cool".) Why I felt I needed to preface as such in my bio, is the fact that back before the mid-century craze hit, you couldn't pick knockoffs up at your corner furniture store on your way home from work, and have your room looking just like the 2008 McMass Market Catalog.
Thanks to everyone for your posts.

Hi Dana - I love your style, sense of placement, and unique flair. On slide 8 can you tell me what the pen and ink (or black paint) wall print is (maker, and where you found), as well as the "folk" art type portraits on slide 28 (maker, and where you found)? One more oooh, that wasn't mentioned in over a year were your luxurious white dining chairs. I'm drooling. Thanks so much for sharing your space, it made my evening!
